Jewish jokes and anti-dentites

The “Yada, Yada, Yada” episode of “Seinfeld” was, without a doubt, one of the best in the series’ nine-season history. It aired again Friday on TBS, and I thought it would be worth posting a short clip for your viewing pleasure. This portion actually isn’t my favorite moment of the episode, but is the only segment I could find on YouTube.

One of the storylines in this episode is that Jerry’s dentist, Tim Whatley, has converted to Judaism, and Jerry suspects he did it for the jokes. This irritates Jerry, and at one point he visits a Catholic priest who is a patient of Whatley’s—during confession, no less—to complain.

“And this offends you as a Jewish person?” the priest asks Jerry.

“No,” he replies. “It offends me as a comedian.”
